Loved the Smell From the Smoker!

Food was good, nothing to write Mom home about. I had the pork sandwich which was pretty tasty. Service was ok. Servers seemed a little rough around the edges. Had to ask for multiple items; napkins, ketchup, spoon for soup, etc. Our server although friendly, looked as if she wanted to be... read more

Customer sure isn't impt here. Took forever to order. Took forever to pay. 2 of 3 orders were over cooked. Don't eat here unless you want to be annoyed.

Stopped here in the afternoon after a day of walking around tubac. The patio was largely empty on a Thursday afternoon. The service was good, our waitress Haillee was attentive and pleasant. We had nachoes, which were about average for pub food. Overall, just about what you would expect for pub grub.

Went for lunch; had a burger and quesadilla. Server walked all over with our food before she finally found us so the food was cold and had to send it back.

We have visited there three times. I have read all the negative reviews most come back to service, especially at peak times. The food is very good, the server we had was a little abrupt but friendly and conscientious. Love the patio seating. You will enjoy your visit.

Also called Old Tubac Inn, Jack's is conveniently located inside the village. We sat at the terrace for a quick lunch, chose the quesadilla with chicken and a guacamole on the side. The server was friendly and we didn't wait for our meal. It was the best quesadillas that we ever had. The minus side were the forks and knifes... More

Great food and good prices make a winning combination for a dinner. The meaty, tender,Ribs are smoked on site and are not to be missed. The service was attentive but not bothersome. Our waiter, Greg, offered advise when asked. Stop and eat.

While at the Tubac Festival of Arts, we decided to try Tubac Jack's. After being told it would be a half hour wait, we returned to wait another 15 minutes. When seated, we were across from the grill so we had a great view of the food preparation. We ordered (and had to repeat the order two minutes later when... More

I combined the Tubac Festival of Arts with meeting family who lived nearby. My party of five sat at our table all afternoon having appetizers, drinks, and food. Considering that there was more than an hour wait for a table, I thought it was great that they never rushed us or made us feel like they wanted to turn the... More
